    The car is a lot of fun bud it was making some strange noises .
    It looked like the noises came out of the tranny .
    I started to take apart the tranny and found the problem , the screws behind the slipper where not tightent enough so the hit the slipper .

    I thought to my self , i have the tranny here out of the car so let me check the inside also .
    It was a good thing that i looked inside because there was no grease in it .

    I like it. Same salt chipping technique I'm using on my Road Hazard build. Comes out looking pretty good once it's been massaged a bit...

    It looks awesome! Are you going to weather the wheels?
